Description

Partida Creus GT 2019

Partida Creus GT has an incredible flow. Fruity, juicy and spice driven. Blackberry, blueberry and black raspberry flavours on the palate are tunnelled through by a fresh acidity as well as leather and pepper spice.  

Fun Fact: GT stands for Garrut, which is the local name for Monastrell or Mourvèdre in Spain.

100% Garrut. The fruit for this wine comes from vines grown in the "Sitgetí" farm, located in the Massis de Bonastre. The farm has clay loam, limestone and very stony soils.

Hand harvesting and total destemming of the fruit. Three day maceration with pigeage every 3 hours, alcoholic fermentation with autochthonous yeasts in stainless steel tanks. The wine ages for 4 months in stainless steel tanks on its fine lees, plus 20 months in deroble barrels.
